1:05 Upstairs Downstairs: Whither Shall I Wander?
From Marcus Welby, M.D. to The Handmaid's Tale
"This house is going to see such life!" So declares the new mistress (familiar face Keeley Hawes) of Upstairs Downstairs' 165 Eaton Place, blowing out the cobwebs after years of disuse. This address is so iconic to fans of classic British TV, it's a wonder Masterpiece Classic waited until its 40th anniversary to time-warp us back for more sudsy ups and downs in this fabled London estate. (For those devoted to the original, a deluxe new 21-DVD set of the complete '70s series has been issued by Acorn Media.)
Being Human (Saturday, 9/8c, BBC America)So much crisis to contend with in the finale to the excellent third season of the original (and superior) version of the supernatural thriller. Mitchell has committed the ultimate no-no in vampire world — he's been arrested — and given that the episode title is "The Wolf-Shaped Bullet," there's even more desperation in his need to learn how the revived (and now evil again) Herrick survived the sort of werewolf slaughter that has been predicted for Mitchell.

Not only will this revelation shake the Florrick family, but after two years into the series, it could impact characters like Kalinda, Will, Cary and Eli in a way that the original scandal never did. Also, while overall viewership remains strong, Wife's 18-49 demo has been rather low this season. New competition from Body of Proof will probably not help the situation. Should fans of The Good Wife be concerned about potential cancellation or at least be prepared for a scheduling change for season three? — RoseMatt Roush: This twist is what we like to call a bona fide bombshell. Couldn't come at a more advantageous time for the show, which thrives on personal and workplace conflict...
Upstairs, Downstairs fever is raging once again! Already seen by an audience of one billion in over 70 countries, the landmark British soap opera (1971-75) is coming back in an eagerly awaited PBS sequel April 10, with Jean Marsh still in the role of the deliciously officious Rose. What's more, the original series has just been released on DVD in a fabulous 40th anniversary edition (available at acornonline.com). The collector set includes all five seasons, over 25 hours of never-before-seen features, episode commentaries, cast interviews (both vintage and new) and an alternate ending to the series pilot. TV Guide Magazine spoke with one of the original's greatest stars, Lesley-Anne Down, now best known as the cougarific Jackie M on The Bold and the Beautiful. Back then she played the dazzling Lady Georgina Worsely. And, man, does Down have wild memories of her time at 165 Eaton Place!
